Easy to use Solutions That Add Speed to your Grinding and Polishing Process
Platen Systems for Grinding and Polishing
Tailor your platen system solution with Buehler to achieve the optimal blend of speed and user-friendly operation. Whether you’re employing the Apex S system, a high-friction solution designed specifically for grinding papers, or opting for a magnetic system, Buehler provides an array of platen system solutions in 8-12in [203-305mm] sizes to perfectly meet your specific needs.
The magnetic system offers quick changing of surfaces with a variety of magnets and carrier plate options to choose from.
While the traditional system allows users to attach adhesive backed consumables to a magnetic carrier plate, Buehler customers also have the option to choose magnetic backed polishing cloths and Diamond Grinding Discs. This eliminates the carrier plate, allowing users to apply directly to the platen magnet.

Perfect for customers with multiple grinding paper steps, this system is designed to save significant processing time so you can direct your focus on more critical tasks. Explore Buhler’s full lineup of CarbiMet and MicroCut with Apex S backing to optimize your grinding experience.
